Dan Klausing
Owner / President

Dan began his career at Elgin Service Center in the late 1960’s, working for a two man operation primarily pouring bin foundations . Dan assumed ownership in 1972, turning his company into a corporation in 1974.  By assembling multiple construction crews, aggressively selling and providing quality equipment and service to the local agricultural community, the company began to prosper. In the late 1970’s, Dan’s vision and commitment to enhance the quality of the product line at Elgin Service Center and the development of the K Building evolved.  As a member of several of Elgin Service Center vendor’s manufacturing advisory council, Dan has been a staple in the ag community for many years.  The K Building, now large enough to be a business of its own, has been the pulse of Elgin Service Center for the last 20 years.  While Dan now enjoys leading a less aggressive approach to the everyday routine at Elgin Service Center, he still remains active in selling and leading his two sons and the rest of Elgin Service Center as the owner and president.
